I am retiring from designing, building and marketing magic and mentalism products in the fall of this year. Yes, after 15 years in business, Taylor Imagineering will be closing its doors. A number of people in the industry have become aware of this fact and I am pleased to say that I have received offers from a number of entrepreneurs to purchase the intellectual property rights for what amounts to virtually all of my designs. I will post the names of those entrepreneurs here once all the dust has settled. It is very gratifying to me to know that I will be leaving some small legacy to this community that has treated me so well for the last decade and a half.

I'm really glad that someone can possibly take up the IP from you. I do hope they will use it to release your items as they've been the best in the business. Good luck to you and thank you for your beautiful mind!

Hi Christopher it’s a shame you never cracked the motion color match type pens as they were awesome the prototypes I saw and were better than removing from a basket or a crayon box and would have been a killer Gaz.😊

Christopher:

You have made a sterling and enduring contribution. I would not have guessed you’d never retire, which makes me a fallible mentalist!

Enjoy your retirement.

Gaz: I "cracked" that particular puzzle in 2016 when I released Gemini. Still available here: https://taylorimagineering.com/shop/gemini/

Did anyone pick up OHMII? I notice it's no longer on the site.

OHMII was replaced by Knight's Eye which works on a similar principle.

Will there be any big sales before you officially close the doors?

I have found all his products to be very good and well thought out. Does anyone in the USA have an Apogee wallet for sale?

That’s a good question. No, I would see that it’s being unfair to the entrepreneurs acquiring the IP rights. That said, I will be at Magic live and have some specials there.

I'm really happy to hear that you will be at Magic Live! Congrats on retiring! I'm not surprised that you've been contacted about others selling your items. You make great stuff!

The magic community will certainly miss you and your creativity. What little interaction I have had with you, I could sense, you had great passion for our art and its people.

Wish you a very happy, peaceful and enjoyable retired life.

Take care and stay safe. Wish you well.

Best,

Narendra

Aw Chris, I didn't know you are retiring.

All the very best for the future. You have been very kind to me.
